C280 - 1996 - Oil Leak.....

Discussion in 'C Class' started by Curtis Keller, Sep 6, 2004.

  1. I've got a minor oil leak on my C280 - near the firewall by the oil filter.
    I can not seem to actually see the leak - but after a couple hour hi-speed
    run - I can find a little oilly smoke coming from that portion of the
    engine. Since access is limited ----- what should I look for? Is the
    pressure sensor somewhere under the oil filter?

    Are there any good drawing on the web? Or a reference to purchase a good
    manual or CD with drawings / diagnosis information

    thanks

    Before tearing into the engine I'd check the oil filter's seal,
    especially if this leak is sudden.
